Forum: GratefulDead Subject: What? This Good? Really? Wow, You're Not Kidding

OK, It's Friday and you're looking forward to the weekend, maybe some plans with the family, or perhaps some quality time with some friends and a glass of Talisker. Either way you need something to get you through today with as little effort as possible. Well, this might do the trick:
http://www.archive.org/details/gd1980-12-13.nak300.walker-scotton.miller.88964.sbeok.flac16
12/13/80 Long Beach.
First, one of the cleaner AUD's I've heard. Another masterful job by Mr. Miller. Kudos to you, sir. And the show is definitely deserving of his fine treatment. First set is a real smoker and has one of the better St. of Circumstance's out there as well as an incredible Stranger>Sugaree opener that really sets the tone nicely. Jerry really lets it go at the end. Finishes up with a rippin' Deal. Too sweet. Second set has a hoppin Scarlet/Fire that will definitely test the structural integrity of whatever you're sitting on. Really fine effort by everyone concerned. The Playin' follow up continues the assault on your senses, keeping you in your Happy Place while Jerry experiments with bending time and space. One of those shows that has some huge moments, but is even better when taken as a whole. And, again, the quality of this recording is about as good as an AUD gets. Once again my coworkers are left to wonder at the odd smile on my face. If they only knew, maybe one day...

PS. If you decide to listen and get through the show with time to spare, the next night blows up as well.

PPS. Forgot to mention that the Drums/Space is absolutely insane as, so the story goes, Francis Ford Coppola was in attendance just prior to starting work w/ Mickey on the Apocalypse Now soundtrack. Guests Airto Moreira and Flora Purim sit in to really make it extra trippy. You can almost see Brando's sweaty bald head in the jungle.

PPPS. The Sunshine Daydream closer will blow you out of your shoes, then pick them up and beat you about the head and neck.

Why, yes it was. Guess that is yet another urban myth. Good story though.

EDIT: With a little looking around it does seem that Coppolla did go to a show or two and was extremely impressed by the work of Mickey and Billy and wanted the Apocalypse Now soundtrack to have a "Rythym Devils Feel" to it. Perhaps the folks here just got this show mixed up with one from an earlier year.

I've just finished the February '77 show recommended below, so perhaps some 1980 will sort my afternoon out. This might also be a reason for the expressions on the faces of your co-workers (grimace not smile).
